Grannie & Grandpa settled in a home in Farran's Point Ontario located next to the schoolyard. I was born the year Grandpa died. I remember Grannie well. She was a tiny woman no taller than 5 feet and weighed no more than 107 pounds. She was very spiritual and very ladylike. I enjoyed running over to her place because she always had cookies. She died when I was 10 but I will not forget her smile. She and mom were very close. All her daughters except mom and her twin moved to the United States but they visited at least once a year.

NOTE: This cemetery is located in the vicinity of Lunenburg but Lunenburg was not among the cities I had to select from so I put Long Sault as it is the nearest town in the options.

NOTE: IN some census records Esther is spelled Ester and Easter AND others she uses her middle name Ellen as her first.
Grandpa George Easton always was referred to as Easton.
On WorldConnect website a descendant Paul SHEATS from USA has posted his genealogy research on the Sheets (Sheats) family that goes back to my GGG-Grandparents. He even has his will posted there. Fascinating.
